I am working through the Noteshelf course. The video in “Organize Notebook Pages” will not plan/there are no video controls. Have tried on Mac in Safari & Edge and on iPad. All software is current on all devices. This stopped working on March 14 or 15, 2020. I still had my page open on my iPad this morning and the controls were there from yesterday. I refreshed the page and the video controls are gone. Thanks for your help

Complete overhaul of the Member Area!
- New Navigation button
I removed the menu and submenus for the member sections.
Instead I’ve added a new navigation button called “Home”. There, members will find everything related to their membership.
- Locked Content in Member area
Depending on a users membership plan different parts are locked with the option to unlock or preview:
added PDF invoice download option to membership
In the user account/membership/payments, members are now able to download proper PDF invoices of their subscriptions.
added Navigation to the "Tom Solid's Hardware" page
This site is very long. This new navigation allows for easy access to different sections.
In the past 20 days, I changed and added a lot of things on the website!
added Quick Wins section
There is a time when I find something I want to share quickly with my community. Hence, I started this Quick Wins section. There you will find very short descriptions of things that I discovered or that I thought is worth mentioning.
added Feedback button
In the past 20 days I changed and added a lot of things on the website!
Small Changes with big effect
- changed Headline font from Heebo to Oswald
- changed link colors from green (#75d199) to #31afa7
- New global button design
- Updated VLOG and Live Q&A Page layout and design
New Video Platform and Custom Fields
I switched from Vimeo to Wistia. Although more expensive it is important to me that my users get the best experience when doing their online courses or watching Live Q&A replays and VLOGs.
I also added a new custom field to the Live Q&A posts to add links to tools that were mentioned in the Live call much easier and quicker.
New Affiliate System
I added an Affiliate Management System (ThirstyAffiliates) to make users aware of links that are actually affiliate links.
Added Live Q&A Recordings
Finally I added a new post type that allows me to add all the Live Q&A recordings
- I added a better Cookie consent popup
Added Footer to Website
Finally I added a proper footer to the website:
Added -Read next Blog Posts- section to Blog pages and Headers
Added Tom's Toolkit page
I added a “My Equipment” page to the website showing all the hardware and software I use
Complete overhaul of the News Feed Page
Added Forum Updates on Sidebar
Here you will find the latest forum updates. Unread topics will be highlighted in black.
Added "Trees Planted" widget on Sidebar
For each 10 members I plant one tree per month.
The total number of planted trees is now visible on the Sidebar in the News Feed Page
Post Sharing Box added
Adjustment of Forum Fonts
In order to make the Forum feel more integrated in the main website I changed the CSS to match the same fonts for headings and body as the main website does.
Major Website Update!
Switched from BuddyBoss Platform and Theme to Astra Theme
This allows me to have back full control over my website and platform. It also increases page speeds.
Added “Back to Top” button for faster navigation
Transparent Header Added
Complete Overhaul of Account Section
Moving away from the BodyBoss Platform also leads to several problems regarding the overall layout of the website. The biggest impacts were on the Account Page and Course Page.
I was able to recreate manuall the Account page and optimize it further in order to give a simple way to access all the important content areas as quickly as possible:
- Membership Details
New Navigation for Quick Access:
New Account Page for Logged in Users:
New Shop Reviews system implemented
I switched from Yotpo to Judge.me
This allows better integration with the shop and it adds a Q&A functionality!
I tried to click on the page were you have your Toolkit to get the 20% discount, but it did not work. See the screenshot here below. What should I to get that applied?
I am buying the new 2020 iPad Pro 12,9”, as I now have the 2015 Pro 12,9.
Do you recommend the Zugu case to it? I use the handwriting angle a lot, which does not seam to work well with the new upcoming Magic keyboard.
My kind regards,
Hi there. I’ve just joined and would like to do the Noteshelf course. I’ve been watching Tom’s work on YouTube for ages and have been influenced in my technology development as a result, so thanks. My Inner Circle account has been activated on my iPad Pro QA and I’m trying to login to it on my iMac as well so that I can watch the course while practicing on my iPad. When I enter my login details on the iMac the spinning circle prevails. Can anyone help me please

My log-in works on the main landing page. I guess I was looking for the 50% off on the digital journal.
